There’s a new crime story in town, courtesy of NBC.
Yesterday, it was announced that the network will tell the story of the Menendez brothers in a new spin-off series of Law & Order. “The first, eight-episode season of the anthology series will focus on the notorious case of Erik and Lyle Menendez, who were eventually convicted of the 1989 murder of their wealthy parents. Lyle and Erik were just 18 and 21, respectively, at the time of the murders, and grew up in an affluent Cuban American family. The brothers argued that they had been the victims of sexual, physical and mental abuse at the hands of their parents,” The L.A. Times writes.

The site writes: “While it has been an uphill battle (ratings took an abrupt 38 percent tumble), Noah, 32, has earned an audience and has become a go-to for politicos looking to ditch talking points (witness Sen. Lindsey Graham’s recent doomsday prognosis for a Trump nomination). Wilmore, 54, has seen a steep ratings drop compared with previous time-slot occupant Stephen Colbert, but he continues to lead late night’s diversity conversation — his regular segment “Blacklash2016: The Unblackening” offers a bracing take on Donald Trump’s war on multiculturalism. He’ll host President Obama’s final White House Correspondents’ dinner April 30.”
